Diners will struggle to choose just one of the enticing cooked brunches on offer at this eatery – there’s the London bacon bun with béarnaise butter, the DJANGO bun with streaky bacon, fried egg and avocado aioli. The Manouche breakfast box features two fried eggs, streaky bacon, Lincolnshire sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns and buttered toasted sourdough. If you’re on the hunt for a beautiful brunch, Manouche will not disappoint.

french toast crumpets

A brunch like no other. For Eur30 you can pair limitless beer, mimosas and Aperol or wine spitzers with a selection of brunch items from their menu, such as French toast crumpets, toasted English muffins, and creamy eggs on Maltese bread. This is the place for an elegant yet tipsy Saturday brunch in the city. So opt for the boozy brunch offer… because why not?

Newport waffle

Brunch at Two Buoys is an Aussie affair. Combining a beautifully crafted shack-like vibe and an extensive menu with Jesse’s cheerful service, this place is just a cracker. The line-up includes a huge selection of treats: acai smoothie bowls, sweet corn and zucchini fritters, potato rosti, smashed avo on toast, pulled pork and bacon waffles and more. If this brunch spot doesn’t have you feeling sunny, we don’t know what will.

tumeric hummus and eggs

wild berry iced tea

The menu has a huge range, from eggs any way you like, falafel in naan to salads, burgers and even dogs. While the whole menu is great, it would be wrong to go there and not order their Shakshuka or even their tumeric hummus and eggs.  Everything’s seriously tasty and will go down well with one of Danny’s very own homemade refreshments… we’re loving the wild berry, honey and mint iced tea.

Crust pumps out a heap of delicious dishes, but if savoury isn’t your thing, their thick brioche loaf slice with banana, fresh strawberry jam, peanut butter, berry compote, honey and mascarpone is sure to satisfy. 

The eatery is also vegan friendly  and let’s just say it checks off all our brunch requirements in a cool and modern setting.  Fill your feed and your bellies with Chef Sean Gravina’s picture perfect creations. We’d recommend you arrive in your finest pair of elasticated trousers.
